Hello, my name is T.J. and here's why I can help you achieve your goal of learning piano: it's all about method! Learning how to play piano is not nearly as important as learning how to learn to play piano. What I'm saying is almost all of the piano playing that you will do to get better will be done without a teacher, however, spending time to learn the tools and techniques necessary to make you a productive, disciplined learner capable of critical thought will carry you much farther!

Hello, my name is T.J. and I'm currently finishing my bachelor's degree in Vocal Performance. I am a pianist and vocalist with a passion for music theory and vocal pedagogy. I've performed in a wide array of venues and styles and have experience as a music director and collaborative musician. I'm soon going to be pursuing my master's degree in choral conducting, but until then I have a desire to share the knowledge I have obtained in my years as a performer, musician, and director. I'm new to takelessons, though I'm not new to giving them, so say hi and ask some questions!
